Kylie Jenner’s birthday bag from Kuwaiti label Marzook

  • The $2,495 bag, featuring a unique spherical silhouette and an optional chain strap, was sold out on the website
  • The Arab label’s line of accessories consists of exotic leather and skins, precious metals, and resins

JEDDAH: When Kylie Jenner, who is set to become the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire, celebrates her birthday, one can bet it will be no ordinary affair.

For her 21st birthday, she did not disappoint. The entire Kardashian-Jenner clan came together for not one, but two, celebrations for the reality TV star. The festivities began Thursday night and lasted into the wee hours of Friday. And the stand-out was a sparkling crystal orb bag by Kuwaiti brand Marzook sported by the birthday girl herself.
Kylie started off at Craig’s restaurant in Los Angeles with a hot pink satin dress by Peter Dundas, which boasted ‘80s-inspired shoulder pads, a cut-out center and bow detail.
Post-dinner, the cosmetics mogul changed into a more risqué birthday suit adorned with 70,000 Swarovski crystals. The outfit, also pink, was a custom-made tube top and cycling shorts by haute couture brand LaBourjoisie. Kylie added to the bling factor with Marzook’s matching bag.
The accessories maison, helmed by designer siblings Fahad and Shouq Al-Marzook, has made bags that have been sported by the likes of Amal Clooney, Lupita Nyong’o and Cara Delevingne.
The Arab label’s line of accessories consists of exotic leather and skins, precious metals, and resins. The designs draw inspiration from a mix of Eastern and Western cultures, reflecting the world in which the brand was developed. 
The $2,495 bag, featuring a unique spherical silhouette and an optional chain strap, was sold out on the website.
Kylie posted several images from her birthday parties on Instagram. Summing up her night, she wrote alongside a photo of the five famous sisters: “A bunch of baddies ... we’re 21 today.”
Among those who attended the after-party at Delilah’s were Delevingne, Ashley Benson, Chris Brown, Dave Chapelle, Jordan Clarkson, Kevin Durant, Bella Hadid, Winnie Harlow, Sophia Hutchins, Caitlyn Jenner, Stassi Karanikolaou, Draya Michele, French Montana, The Weeknd, Kanye West and Jordyn Woods.
Media sources reported that an unidentified woman was photographed being taken out of Kylie’s party by paramedics on a stretcher. While it was unclear whether she was a guest at the party, Caitlyn Jenner and close friend Sophia Hutchins were seen in the background.
Last month, the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star was declared the youngest person on the Forbes list of America’s Richest Self-Made Women, with an estimated net worth of $900 million.
However, some critics were quick to note that Kylie is anything but “self-made,” as she was born into wealth and fame.

Miss England contestant wears a wetsuit to ‘stay true to Muslim background’

DUBAI: Miss England contestant Aysha Khan took to social media recently to explain why she chose to wear a wetsuit in the optional swimsuit portion of the competition.

Khan, 21, from Lancashire posted the images of herself on Facebook wearing the wetsuit.

“I decided to enter the round this year, however I wanted to push forward the message that swimwear doesn’t necessarily mean a bikini,” the Education Studies student wrote. “Empowerment can be felt in many different ways and can be promoted in many different ways. Some women may feel more confident showing more skin and some women feel more confident showing less – the message being; empowerment is a personal feeling, and not wearing a bikini does not mean I am not confident about my body,” she captioned the post.

The contestant decided to take part in the optional round on her own terms, telling the Lancashire Telegraph, “This round is completely optional, and I didn’t want to miss out, so I submitted a photo in a surf suit. I wanted to show a different take on swimwear, and that you don’t have to wear a bikini to go to the beach.

 “I think other girls can see this and realize that they can do the same. Particularly because of my background, being Muslim too, I wanted to stay true to myself,” she added.

The pageant’s winner will be crowned on August 1.
